Thanks for getting back to me

PowerCms is now installed on LocalHost using XAMPP

Must addmit the time I have took to install this extension I could have built the backend myself

For people like me who haven't got a clue about setting up a Localhost using PowerCMS with XAMPP

You can check your Server Security by opening Browser and typing in

Settings I had to change:

Tip when installing XAPP install to Example: C:\XAMPP
as c:\program files\XAMPP has some file restrictions

Step 1 ( Setup CURL )

Locate XAMPP install directory
2. open php/php.ini (probably C:\xampp\php\php.ini
or C:\ program files\apachefriends\xampp\php\php.ini)
3. do a search for the word ‘curl’ and uncomment (remove the leading semicolon) that line
before removing ;extension=php_curl.dll
after removing: extension=php_curl.dll
4. save & close
5. open apache/bin/php.ini (probably C:\xampp\apache\php.ini
or C:\ program files\apachefriends\xampp\apache\php.ini)
6. search for curl, uncomment as before (step 3)
7. save & close
8. Do not forget! restart apache

Step 2 (Reset XAMPP MySQL root password through SQL update:)

1.Start the Apache Server and MySQL instances from the XAMPP control panel.
2.After the server started, open any web browser and give phpmyadmin/ (if you are

running XAMPP on 8090 port). This will open the phpMyAdmin interface. Using this interface we can manager the

MySQL server from the web browser.
3.In the phpMyAdmin window, select SQL tab from the right panel. This will open the SQL tab where we can run

the SQL queries.
4.Now type the following query in the textarea and click Go
UPDATE mysql.user SET Password=PASSWORD('password') WHERE User='root';
5.Now you will see a message saying that the query has been executed successfully.
6.If you refresh the page, you will be getting a error message. This is because the phpMyAdmin configuration

file is not aware of our newly set root passoword. To do this we have to modify the phpMyAdmin config file.
7.Open the file [XAMPP Installation Path] / phpmyadmin / in your favorite text editor.
8.Search for the string $cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = ”; and change it to like this, $cfg['Servers']

[$i]['password'] = ‘password’; Here the ‘password’ is what we set to the ‘root’ user using the SQL query.
9.Now all set to go. Save the file and restart the XAMPP server.
